Thanks for the post. I learn a lot of stuff I wouldn't have otherwise known on this forum.

Re: plastic repair

Weld repairs are easy on PE tanks. Can be completed with a decent soldering iron and some filler plastic. A chopping board will often suffice.

Personally I wouldn't bother repairing PE plastic fuel tanks. The cleaning process required is usually not worth the trouble. The repair on dirty plastic will lack the strength of the parent material.

Adhesives for thermoplastics are somewhat of an oxymoron.
